ASPEN, Colo. — Not only did Kaya Turski win her third consecutive gold medal in Women’s Ski Slopestyle on Thursday, she did it by landing the first switch 1080 by a woman in Winter X Games history, on the final jump of the contest’s final run.

Needing a near-perfect third run to overtake leader Devin Logan (92.33), Turski left no doubt when she landed her switch 10. Her fellow competitors mobbed her at the bottom of the course even before her score had been posted, and moments later Turski moved up from bronze to gold, relegating Logan to silver. Turski landed all three of her runs and scored better than 88 points on each of them.

Australia’s Anna Segal (90.00) took bronze after leading most of the competition, and two-time silver medalist Keri Herman settled for fourth (87.00).
